Given the resemblance of the character of Satan with Tim Curry’s portrayal in the 1985 film Legend many wondered if there was a sequel in the offing.

Taylor’s resinging of the 2008 hit comes even as a battle over her master recordings continues with her former record label.

Swift has publicly feuded for more than a year with Big Machine and its senior executives over the use of her old songs.
